    i hear ppl say that plastic containers absorb THC, so u should store in a glass jar...

    i say fuuuuck that.
    i doubt there'd be enough thc absorbed to make a difference at all, even if it DID get absorbed

    As long as you use a PolyPro (tuperware type) type of plastic your good! The only one I would not use is a Low Density PolyEtheleyne (LDPE) as there is some storage issues, especally locking in smells and allowing the THC to migrate thru the structure of the plastic.:(

    It doesn't absorb it, but there is a lot of static in plastic bags, and that causes the kif from the buds to build up and stick to the bags.

    Personally, I don't use plastic bags anymore. I store my buds in glass jars that keeps them fresh and delicious for many weeks.

    Plastic doesn't really breathe either.. so drying/curing a harvest in a big rubbermaid can be a bit touchy if you're unable to open the container daily.

    yes exactly..plastic is usually staticy which causes kief and maybe even some bottom bag to stick to it

    I buy in black sacks and then put it in glass jars. Keeps it perfectly fresh, and the kief on the buds doesnt stick to it.

    I use a plastic container by BIOKIPS. Its basically just tupperware. It does catch some kief with static, but you can scrape it with a metal file and collect it back.

    Should I get glass or is this good?

    I use nothing...:(

    But if I did use would be glass jars...then transfer to a baggie a few days before I plan to smoke it (it removes a bit of the "jar" taste, I think).

    All I know is when I stored by bud in plastic it seemed to get dryer and less potent by the week. When I switched to glass the bud maintained way better. I honestly don't know if plastic is a worse storage method or not if done right but I rather just go with the way that's been workin for me for a while now :jointsmile:.
